SubjectRe: e2fs performance as function of block size

The disk drivers are not, and they normally see merged runs of blocks so they
will see big chunks rather than 1K then 1K then 1K etc.

I see higher performance with 4K block sizes. I should see higher latency too
but have never been able to measure it. Maybe it depends on the file system.
It certainly depends on the nature of requests
